AAL platforms; semantic middleware; interactive configuration

In the last few years, technologies with a semantic middleware were established under the AAL platforms. These technologies simplify the reaction to various and rapidly changing needs of assisted elderly. Building on this established semantic basis, the set-up and configuration of individual use cases can be simplified. Up to now it is hardly possible to set up an AAL environment without technical knowledge. This paper presents how the process of set-up and configuration of AAL environments based on ontologies could proceed. The support starts with the developers of the use cases, continues with the integration in the middleware and ends up in the maintenance during operation. At the end, different configuration support tools based on the semantic middleware universAAL will be described.
